Han’s Swim Paddles


Proud Partner of the International Swim Coaches Association
“Feel of the water on the hand is vital for an efficient and successful competitive swimming stroke. Our holed paddles do it best!” – Dick Hannula
Since they were first introduced by Coach Dick Hannula in 1985, these paddles have reduced joint stress while building strength and feel for the water for swimmers at every level from notice to Olympic Champions. They are the most versatile paddles available. They can be used in varying hand positions depending on the stroke and drill.
